This garden is all about wild plants with a predominantly green palette, cleverly designed to evoke a sense of being immersed in wilderness. By lifting the planting and intersecting a path through it, the plants are raised close to eye level. The height, form, texture and tonal values of the plants create a rich natural tapestry and the result is an experience of being engulfed by vegetation.
At the garden's core is a place to pause beneath a dappled canopy. Weathered timber lines the sides of the walkway, which is strewn with leaf litter. Weathered boulders resonate with age.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
The Wilderness Foundation works to create meaningful interactions with nature for younger generations, so that they may experience a sense of wonder and awe in nature. For the next generation to be stewards of our world, it's vital they make a connection with it to develop a sense of value and care.
The garden has been relocated to Henry Maynard School in Walthamstow, London, giving students an opportunity to enjoy a slice of nature and inviting them to care for it into the future. It is used regularly as a teaching space, and is enjoyed by students and the wider school community every day.
